Chelsea agree deal for Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus

Chelsea release Sarri as Juve beckon; Lampard lined up for return Derby County demand compensation for sought after gaffer

After just a season in charge, a deal has been reached for Maurizio Sarri to leave the club and join Serie A champions Juventus, according to United Kingdom reports, with former playing favourite Frank Lampard lined up to be Chelsea's first English manager in 23 years.

Lampard would look to take his partner in crime and former Chelsea colleague Jodie Morris with him as his number two, so it could be a nice little reunion in South West London should the move happen. Five things to know...

Frank Lampard, Massimiliano Allegri, Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espírito Santo, Steve Holland and Javi Gracia have all been linked with the soon-to-be vacant role.

Chelsea are expected to seek talks with Derby over a deal to install Frank Lampard as the next Blues manager.

It is elsewhere claimed he met with Chelsea earlier this week to discuss replacing Sarri.

Sarri, though, did manage to end on a high as Chelsea lost just one of their last eight Premier League games while the other contenders for a top-four finish stumbled towards the end of the season. However, following the issue of a looming transfer ban many observers felt he was safe.

"I will take a year out because I have to reclaim my private life".

"Looking at him as an individual, he deserves it, and looking at Juventus hiring a manager who has overachieved at his last two jobs, you can't fault him, it's just something about the marriage of Juventus and Maurizio Sarri that - for me - doesn't work". You have to take time away from what you usually spend with family and friends. "This year will let me recharge with a view to coming back for the following campaign".

Lampard spent 13 years at Chelsea, writing himself into the history books as a club legend, and has proved successful in his first venture into management, leading Derby to the Championship playoff final in his first season in charge.
